PIA Press Release

USEP hosts webcast for young entrepreneurship

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (12 November) -- Young leaders and entrepreneurs are invited to join the seminar via webcast on youth entrepreneurship.

As part of continuing efforts to disseminate the messages of the World Development Report 2007, the World Bank will be having a knowledge-sharing activity on "Youth Entrepreneurship as Career Option in EAP: Key Components for Success".

The University of Southeastern Philippines will serve as the host of the seminar to be viewed via webcast on November 14 from 10am to 12:30 pm.

The knowledge-sharing activity will feature four presentations from youth and NGOs supporting youth entrepreneurs from China, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.

Through interactive discussions, participants will have the opportunity to learn the key elements for success in terms of scalability and sustainability, and business initiatives that would be useful and transferrable in their own settings.

Moderating the activity will be Mr. Emmanuel Y. Jimenez, Director, World Development Report 2007 and Director, Human Development (Education, Health, Nutrition and Population), East Asia and Pacific Region (World Bank) and the Key Note Speaker is Mr. Ronald Perkinson, President of Putera Sampoerna Foundation based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Entrepreneurship can be a promising career option for youth as they seek to make a smooth transition from school to work, especially when the economic growth of their home country fails to keep pace with the growing number of graduates entering the labor force, and where career opportunities are limited in the labor market.

The Human Development Unit in the East Asia and the Pacific Region will bring together youth entrepreneurs, private sector representatives, policy-makers, and donor agencies from seven countries in the region to identify the activities of youth entrepreneurs in the region and share lessons learned from both positive and negative experiences.

It also aims to identify market opportunities for youth entrepreneurs, and provide all stakeholders with an opportunity to seek possibilities for partnership and collaboration in the area of youth entrepreneurship. (PIA) [top]
